Introducing Cheryl White from Mercury Franchise Consultants
In 2011, I set up my first business Apollo Care, a domiciliary care company, providing much-needed care to vulnerable people living in their own homes. The business was, and still is, a huge success and I was soon getting calls from all over the North West asking for care. I had a decision to make:
Should I open more offices to meet demand?
Should I franchise my business?
I decided to franchise my business for many reasons:
Time: I had a young child and wanted to spend more time with him
Expansion: I felt I could expand my business much faster by franchising as I would not be responsible for the day-to-day running of the teams.
Money: Selling franchises would enable me to put money back into the business, without borrowing, to improve my current systems and quality control.
Protection: The franchise model protects my brand and reputation, giving me control over franchise outlets and quality of systems.
My first franchise was sold in 2013 and my business has continued to grow and expand across the country. I now have excellent systems in place to support and monitor franchisee development and performance and we are improving and developing new systems all the time.
Cheryl and Sue White: Founders of Apollo Care
I realised that many people may wish to franchise their business but may be on a tight budget. My team and I decided that putting together 3 franchise packages would help people to achieve their franchising goals without overspending, and set up Mercury Franchise Consultants in 2015.
